Treasures in the Apennines: the Bardi Castle and the mountain Parmigiano Reggiano

At 30 km from Parma, Valceno begins, a place where nature is the characteristic element of the most beautiful attractions of the area; castles, ruins of fortifications, churches and social or family-run businesses that pursue the processing of the typical product par excellence: the mountain Parmigiano Reggiano. At over 600 m. on the level of the sea, in the zone of the high Valceno, the small but characteristic village of Bardi is placed, on which the homonymous Castle dominates. A private visit will catapult you into the history of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance of the princes who inhabited it. From the towers and walkways you can admire a breathtaking landscape on the river Ceno and the Apennines. The entrance will be preceded by the morning visit of an organic farm leader in the production of Parmigiano Reggiano. You will discover all the processing processes and taste the finished product, understanding the difference between the production of "plain" and that of mountains. Following, typical lunch.
